Synchronicity
Synchronicity can be simply defined as meaningful
coincidence in people’s lives, which was defined
by the psychologist Carl Jung in 1952, when he
published a paper about it. It is interesting that he
thought for over thirty years concerning this
concept before publicising it.

I was attracted to this subject because I knew that
such a thing could exist, however I could never
expect that a psychologist would publish a
“scientific” paper to introduce it as a fact or a
hypothesis.  Well, I thought that synchronicity is
from those concepts that people always know
about, however it should always stay at the stage
of a fairy tale, behind their minds; there are many
secrets about life that we never talk about to
anyone, just because we may presume these
phenomena have been “coincidental”, “too private”
or just too personal.


I believe that synchronicity is an invisible
connection among individuals who are categorized
by specific factors, for instance, their age, genetic
similarities, geographic co-ordinations,
psychological compatibility, life history, type of
relationship, or other unknown elements. For
whatever reason, these individuals may experience
eccentric experiences that could not easily be
defined as a pure coincidence.


In my personal life, I can talk about numerous
experiences between myself and some other
people, which I could never find any logical way to
explain. I have always noticed that there is a
mysterious connection between me and some
particular people, even those that I had never met,
with different age or time of occurrence; one
example was the time that I suddenly decided to
find a poem from an old poet that I had never met
before nor heard from for over twenty two years.
Surprisingly when I arrived home, I heard from the
radio that this poet had died earlier that day in a
hospital in the United States, on the other side of
the world to me!


Despite the fact that I have got plenty of evidence
to accept partially the validity of the hypothesis of
synchronicity, still there is not enough scientific
evidence to determine quantitatively the strength of
its accuracy. My first question could be whether
the synchronic people should have met each other
some how, or have some degrees of close
sympathy or not. On the other hand, I would
know whether these kinds of events could happen
among people who basically do not share many
identifiable personality or physical characteristics.
